What You're Getting Into
XOC-Ha is situated in a very quiet, peaceful residential community known as Rancho Santa Teresita. Located almost equidistant between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, some five minutes south of Puerto Aventuras, XOC-Ha boasts easy access to spellbinding cenotes, dazzling beaches, the lively eateries and amusements of four nearby towns, and of course, the peace and tranquility of the jungle.
The XOC-Ha compound is not only protected by 24-hour security, but also by a high gate and fences, ensuring complete privacy.
XOC-Ha has two guest houses: Casa Blanca (get it?!) and Casa Roja. Guests can access the XOC-Ha compound at their convenience, and park their cars safely and securely outside their homes. Each guesthouse has free WiFi, a small outdoor breakfast palapa, and facilities for storing/drying dive gear and charging lights, computers, and DPVs.
Guests will also enjoy free access to our swimming pool and recreational palapa, which is fitted out with a lounge and table-tennis, if that happens to be your game. We also have a fully-equipped service bench, where we can overhaul or repair most pieces of dive equipment, if needed during your stay. There is also a small cenote on the property.
What's In A Name?
We dubbed our little slice of heaven XOC-Ha because it draws on the imagery of one of the most joyous tarot cards: the Ten of Cups ( X of Cups).
It represents almost an idyllic state of peace, harmony and love, where all your dreams and wishes have come true and you are delighting in your good fortune. We're not really into divination, but it seems pretty darn apt.
We abbreviated it to "XOC", because it sounds kinda Mayan. "Ha" is the Mayan word for water, so put the words "XOC-Ha" together, and you have the somewhat silly story behind our name.
* We have since learned from a native Mayan speaker that "xoc" means, "to count." So "xoc ha" means "counting water."
